It’s crazy how time flies. I can’t believe another year has passed and it’s time for the annual ISSA/INTERCLEAN® North America trade show and convention, October 25-28, in Chicago, IL.
This year, more than ever, ISSA has created more opportunities to increase the value of attending the trade show for every segment of the commercial cleaning industry. Specifically, for building service contractors and in-house facility managers, this year’s event will offer expanded education and certification programs, countless peer-to-peer networking opportunities, and inspiring keynote speakers. And with more than 700 companies exhibiting new, cutting-edge technologies, you can find solutions to help increase efficiencies and better manage your business and facilities.
As technology continues to play a pivotal role in the cleaning industry, I’m very excited to see all of the new technology-based innovations at the trade show. I’ve seen and read about many of them here in Cleaning & Maintenance Management (CMM) and as part of ISSA’s Innovation Award Program, but I can’t wait to see them in person. I hope to see you there, too.
If you are unable to attend the show in Chicago, don’t worry; CMM has you covered. We will keep you informed on the happenings at ISSA/INTERCLEAN via the CM e-News Daily e-newsletter and on our Twitter and Facebook accounts. Plus, as in the past, you can tune in to several educational sessions and keynotes via the ISSA-TV Live Stream at www.issa.com/live.
It’s important to remember that in addition to the annual trade show, ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, is committed to its mission of changing the way the world views cleaning. What does that mean for you? In short, it means that ISSA is committed to unifying the cleaning industry by increasing the appreciation and real value for cleaning as an investment in human health, the environment, and an improved bottom line.
Subsequently, the CMM team is dedicated to delivering the highest quality content and resources to help you stay up to date on the latest developments in the industry and to provide solutions to your daily challenges.
